REASON WHY Avara CHOSE G.MONDINI
A MANUAL PROCESS
With the significant investment to-date, Avara Foods’ Hereford factory operates with a sophisticated robotic solution in place for weighing and packing poultry portions, but at this stage, did not have the tray-sealing capacity to match. This resulted in a manual intervention process – with Operators manually removing and buffering trays before tray-sealing, where they would then manually reload onto the conveyor at the end of the run to allow for the reduced tray-sealing capacity on the line.
Tests to run the existing tray sealer at a higher capacity resulted in reduction in product quality – with their dedication to the highest quality, this solution wasn’t viable for Avara Foods.
The G.Mondini Trave® 384 in combination with the dynamic pacer belt will run up to 75 packs per minute on S2 trays with gas-flushing application – making this the highest available throughput for this machine footprint on the market.
G.MONDINI SEES AVARA FOODS FIT FOR THE FUTURE
Following several discovery meetings where G.Mondini was able to understand Avara Food’s pain points, a strategic solution was proposed – the Trave® 384 with an in-feed dynamic pacing belt. This solution would easily process the highest output from the RoboBatcher within the same footprint as the existing slower-speed, competitor tray sealer. In addition to increasing capacity to maximise the efficiency of the Hereford factory – due to the unique and consistent sealing mechanism of the Trave tray-sealers – maximum seal integrity and product safety was achieved. G.Mondini delivered the Trave® 384 solution with a range of quick-change tooling – providing Avara Foods with the flexibility of their previous solution, with the capacity required to support their future-fit Hereford factory, within the existing footprint.
